There are few properties that come to market truly “move-in ready”. This stunning new construction offering in the desired Tree Section of Manhattan Beach reaches beyond the concept of “spec” and presents as a luxury custom home completely fitted with state-of-the-art technologies and detailed upgrades throughout. Brought to you by the expert builders at Mike Davis Custom Homes.

Intentionally designed to provide a serene and private setting to retreat within after a day out enjoying all the community activity in nearby Downtown Manhattan Beach, from the curb to the custom hardscaped backyard, you'll enjoy views of expertly planned landscaping. Upon entry, the eye is drawn immediately to the great room and the yard beyond. A disappearing door allows for that highly sought after indoor-outdoor experience, which extends the entertaining areas and allows for fluid, transitional use of the yard area on a near-daily basis.

The heart of the home centers around an sleek and stylish open concept kitchen, fitted with premium Thermador appliances, custom cabinetry, a built-in espresso machine, a center island topped with Neolith stone and prep sink, custom microwave drawer, open shelving detail, a butler's pantry and walk in pantry and built-in breakfast nook. The kitchen allows for seamless engagement with the great room and backyard beyond. A fully stocked outdoor kitchen features BBQ with rotisserie, prep sink, and fridge. Outdoor counter space offers a great outdoor dining option. The showpiece of the home is the “cool pool” in ground spa and soaking pool surrounded by a fire feature.

Speakers throughout are connected to a Sonos system controlled by your Smartphone or the mounted iPad home-control center. The home is offered complete with a high end audio visual package, wi-fi enabled thermostat, IQ garage door openers, a Ring door monitor system, perimeter security cameras, and automated window coverings in the great room and master suite, all of which can be customized to be controlled remotely via Smartphone. LED lighting, high-efficiency dual zoned central A/C, and low flow plumbing fixtures contribute to the efficiency of this environmentally conscious residence.

All four bedrooms are located on the upper level, leaving the clutter of day-to-day living out of sight from your main entertaining spaces. Conveniently located on the bedroom level is the laundry/utility room complete with an EnergyStar rated washer/dryer set. All eyes appreciate the designer LED chandelier which serves as a focal art-piece in the home. Tall windows wash the house in natural light making for a bright and cheerful home environment. A double door entry sets the master suite apart. The master enjoys a large private deck with a view of the landscaped yard, a large customized walk-in closet and a gorgeous master bath. His & hers vanity stations, a stand-alone soaking tub and walk-in shower compliment this relaxing master retreat.

A special feature of this well-planned property is the separate single car garages. Just 3 blocks away from the local elementary school where neighborhood families gather to enjoy the grounds after school hours, close to Downtown Manhattan Beach, Target, and Trader Joe's; within 15 minutes of LAX and offering an easy drive in and out of the Tree Section, this property is an ideal location for today's on-the-go lifestyle.
